Re: Lightest Bmx you know of....?

I would have to say CW Pistol Pete as frame / fork .  Golly Gosh, that is really light.  Like handling a poster board.  My buddy had one and picked it up , couldn't believe how light it was.

Re: Lightest Bmx you know of....?

Profile made a complete Magnatanium mini BITD called the Magnatanium Mini II that Heather O'Rouke raced a for them.  It could also be had as a complete by special order.  It had some extremely exotic parts:  3 finger Profile Spider, Profile mini bars (yea try to find a set), 1/2 width Magnesium hubs, TI spokes, drilled out to the max from Profile itself, hollow pin Profile spec chain....weight was reported at 9.5 pounds and retailed for $1295 with TI spokes and I believe $1095 with regular spokes.  The f/f set was painted black....from the 1 pic I have somewhere.

If you are OK with your actions why the concerted effort to hide what happened?

I bet if you took all the f/f sets from BITD you would be shocked at what you find.

Re: Lightest Bmx you know of....?

I remember reading this article BITD and thinking how they screwed this build up. First of all, they even admitted the spokes were a bad investment towards weight savings. Second, regular Vector bars were lighter than these. Third, Troxel Comet seats were lighter, cheaper and had a better seat post.

I had an RRS frame that was lighter than this, too bad it was already wrecked when I got it. Then again, I probably wouldn't have been able to get my hands on it if it hadn't been wrecked first.

I'm planning on using Stands no-tube sealant... I know they make 1 it's called cafe latex but I've heard horrible reviews on it ... and as for slime I haven't heard good reviews about it either...... but I've watched a few videos on stands no-tube sealent it looks to be the 1 to use

Re: Lightest Bmx you know of....?

i tuned this thing ↑ ; & its soooo freakn light i couldnt ride it lol

Going tubeless is painless- imo. it is the only way in AZ to keep from having constant flats. sad
here is a quiky way (ghetto tubeless) for anyone to try:
slice a tube a couple sizes to small for your wheel
http://i184.photobucket.com/albums/x163/dedmann3/07586ad5.jpg
fit to wheel with the excess hanging around outside of rim
http://i184.photobucket.com/albums/x163/dedmann3/64dc68c0.jpg
mount tire & hit with soapy water to "bead tire" (notice all those bubbles- they are being caused by perforation in sidewall)
http://i184.photobucket.com/albums/x163/dedmann3/4166f2f8.jpg
here the MAGIC part- fill with 2-4oz os Stans NoTubes sealant by means of pulling out valve core
http://i184.photobucket.com/albums/x163/dedmann3/e8579570.jpg
Inflate to 50psi. roll wheel around horizontally and bounce a few times
then pull excess tube and cut......
http://i184.photobucket.com/albums/x163/dedmann3/d858768e.jpg
after all said and done cant even tell ya did it
http://i184.photobucket.com/albums/x163/dedmann3/18763120.jpg

this method is tough and proven. i just raced a super D this weekend and didnt flat a  tire or burp any on rocks! cool
